Trees shaped by wind, so like ourselves shaped by the world around us, and the choices we have made. Different sizes, different shapes outwardly, yet the branches, like each of us, touch one another and become intertwined regardless of our differences. Some trees bend almost to the ground, yet continually stretch back toward the sun, no matter what has caused them to bend. How wonderful it would be if we could be shaped by the wind of the spirit, always reaching to the one above, accepting and caring for one another no matter what life brings.
